NGU PARENT E-NEWSLETTER
VERSE OF THE MONTH
PARENTS IN PRAYER
It actually happened, and exams will probably have come and gone by the time you are reading this. Now what? How to pray for your child this summer?

  • Let them rest awhile! Their brains are pretty frazzled. Prepare their favorites foods and let them sleep. I promise you they are tired, and they have earned some rest!

  • Do they have a summer job? If not, I can promise you that they feel stressed about this! Ask the Lord to bring them work that will be helpful for the next step of their education journey. Sometimes a really hard, back breaking job is just what they need to spur them on to finish the degree that matches their passion. Honestly, ask the Lord to use their summer work experience.

  • Pray for accountability for them. While a student here, friends and professors are constantly keeping an eye on them. Many people are pouring into their lives. Going home sometimes makes it hard to find their place – at church and among their old crowd of friends. (You might need to pray for new friends for them!) 

  • Speaking of church……. some of our students live close enough to be in their home church every week, but if your child has only been home for the holidays, they will need to find their place back in your church family. Pray that God will open doors of opportunity and service for them.

Thank you for letting us have your child this year. I pray that your summer will include some great memories that will carry them through this next school year.
